What the little pyramid stitch is is a easy to learn and do stitch to use if you want to add some pizazz to a loom knitted project such as a blanket, wash cloth or dishcloth. The stitch itself is a combination of the purl stitch, and the flat version of the knit stitch.
Don’t worry if you are not familiar with the purl or the knit stitch because the excellent close ups of the knitting being done combined with the detailed explanations Denise gives makes it easy for even the beginner to follow along with the Denise as she demonstrates how to knit the stitch.
Another good trait you will find in almost all of the LoomaHat.com loom knit tutorials is the on-screen instructions and patterns. This is something I think that makes so easy to learn the little pyramid stitch.
